Why We Do This
“It’s All About Them”
They are the men, women and children who were murdered-- all 2,976.
are the Police, Fire and EMS personnel who responded to the call that
Tuesday morning--a day over 400 died.
They are the rescue and
They are the soldiers, who as the dust settled in
NYC, DC and PA, walked into harm’s way. Over 6,852 soldiers have died
since that day.
They are the sons, daughters, wives, husbands,
grandmothers, grandfathers, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors
and co-workers who survive them.
We will take the time to remember, who they are, how they died, and that they suffered. We will read the names of the dead, reflect on their pain and pray for them all. We will light a candle, sing a song, offer a Mass, stand vigil, with honor and reverence. Will 24 hours be enough?
We should honor them as we did on 9/12/01 by being concerned for each other. By looking our neighbor or a stranger in the eye with a smile and a kind word. Stop by a military base or hospital, police station, firehouse, rescue squad or ambulance garage and say thank you, shake a hand, write a note, bake a cake, send flowers or volunteer to help.
Fly the Flag. Pray and thank God.
It is all about them. It is the right thing to do.
May God Bless Them and God Bless America!
